Easter Bunny Crosswalk Sting Operation

 

What:
Traffic Enforcement Officers Will Conduct Sting Operation Targeting Motorists Who Fail to Yield to Pedestrians

When:
Wednesday, March 27, 2002, at 7:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.

Where:
Intersection of Woodman Avenue and Parthenia Street

Los Angeles: In 2001, the Valley Bureau of the Los Angeles Police Department experienced a 19% increase in fatal traffic collisions over the figures for the year 2000. Forty three percent of these fatal traffic collisions were of vehicle vs. pedestrians.

In an effort to reduce the incidence of pedestrian involved traffic collisions, officers from Valley Traffic Division will be conducting a sting operation at the most dangerous intersection in the Valley. A six-foot four-inch, 320 pound officer, dressed as the Easter Bunny, will be attempting to cross the street in the marked crosswalk. Other traffic enforcement officers will be ready to stop and cite motorists who fail to yield to this decoy officer.

Sergeant Dale Turner of Valley Traffic Division's Community Traffic Services Unit can provide the media with pertinent traffic related figures and statistics. Sergeant Turner can be reached at 818-902-0336.

This media advisory was prepared by Public Information Officer Jason Lee, Media Relations Section, 213-485-3586.
